Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco: 249 reviews and 410 photos
Before its completion in 1937, the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE was considered unbuildable because of foggy weather, 60 mile-per-hour winds and strong ocean currents sweeping through a deep rugged canyon below.
At a cost of $35 million, the 1.2 mile bridge took more than four years to build. Eleven men lost their lives during construction.
Pedestrians and bicyclists are allowed across the bridge on pathways.
The bridge toll for vehicles is $5.00, collected when entering San Francisco.
Address: Northwestern Tip of San Francisco Peninsula
Directions: The bridge is Highway 101's link from San Francisco to the counties North.
